As the error states, do you have the .vwf file in question?

Hi @serj053 

 

Please check that the Waveform.vwf is added in the project. 

And the naming must be matched. 

I do not see any attached file though.

I apologize that I could not respond earlier, the issue was not resolved, I am sending the file again (apparently I did something wrong last time).
Sincerely Sergey.
